This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.
Footer text content cannot be found in string translation [Newspaper] Theme
1) Copy the following code in WPML -> Translation Management -> Custom XML configuration
<wpml-config> <admin-texts> <key name="td_011"> <key name="tds_footer_text"/> </key> </admin-texts> </wpml-config>
2) Once you place the code there, go to WPML -> Translation Management -> Multilingual content setup and refresh the page.
Once you have created language configuration files you need to go to WPML->String Translation and search the strings that you have inserted in the theme options and translate it into the secondary languages.
This is the technical support forum for WPML - the multilingual WordPress plugin.
